Extra! Extra! NewspaperDirect Releases PressReader for iPhone, BlackBerry

PressReaderiPhone.jpgFull-content digital replicas of more than 1,300 newspapers and magazines can now be accessed on the iPhone or the BlackBerry following the release of versions of PressReader for those platforms by NewspaperDirect.

The new PressReader applications are available free-of-charge via Apple’s iTunes App Store and RIM’s BlackBerry App World.

Titles available include The Washington Post, New York Post, Globe and Mail, National Post, The Guardian, Daily Mail, International Herald Tribune, The Australian, Gazeta Wyborcza, Corriere della Sera, Bangkok Post and Kommersant.

NewspaperDirect CEO Alex Kroogman said:

While other news applications offer limited Website access or a reduced version of the publisher’s content, PressReader delivers the publication in its original layout with all of the content from its print edition, including advertising. As the mobile and handheld market evolves, we plan to offer PressReader on additional, new smartphones, e-readers or tablets, as they are announced. This includes the highly anticipated Apple tablet.
